Spray Tanning

tan1

Exposure to the sun causes tanning, a change in pigmentation due to melanin production as a defense against UV rays that damage the skin. Spray tanning or airbrush tanning is UV-free and safe. Get the color you want with spray tanning but by keeping your skin sun damage free. The solution used is paraben free, contains organic DHA, dries odorless, results in no orange hue, water based so it won’t clog pores, fades evenly, and dries instantly. Each color can be customized to your perfect bronzed shade.

The spray tan usually lasts about 5 to 7 days at its darkest. If using the proper moisturizers and taking quicker showers your spray tan can last closer to 2 weeks.

ATTENTION ALL CLIENTS!

Rachel will be taking maternity leave from July 2019 to mid September 2019.  I plan to reach out to my regular monthly clients at the end of August or beginning of September to get you back on my schedule for September appointments. I will re-open my online booking system at the end of September 2019. This is why my online booking schedule is not showing you any available openings for those months. If you would like a referral to another spa for the time that I will be unavailable, please feel free to reach out to me via text or direct messaging. Thank you for your continued support and loyalty, and I can’t wait to see you all again in September!

Sincerely,
Rachel

Single spray tan session: $40

Preparation Before your Spray Tan Session:

1. Shower, shave and exfoliate the skin. Use a loofa or a body scrub to remove dead dull skin cells from the body. This will help the spray tan solution go on evenly and last longer. This is best to be done a few hours before your spray tan session. If a shower and exfoliation cannot be done right before your spray tan session, please let me know and I can offer you an exfoliation wipe to use here at Spa Skin Care.tan2

2. Do not apply any lotions or moisturizers to the skin after your shower or before your spray tan session.

3. Bring or wear loose, dark fitting clothing for after your spray tan session. You may feel slightly damp after your spray tan session, this is normal.

4. Schedule facials, waxing, nail treatments and work outs before your spray tan session. You will not want to get any water or lotions on the body 8 to 12 hours after the spray tan.

During your Spray Tan Session:

1. Feel free to wear what you are comfortable with during your spray tan session. An old swim suit, cotton undergarments (the solution is water soluble so it will wash out of most clothing), panties, or nothing.  (Men must wear undergarments.)

After your Spray Tan Session:

1. Do not shower for 8 to 12 hours after your spray tan.

2. Do not apply any lotions to the skin until after your first initial shower. Once showered, be sure to avoid moisturizers with mineral oils.

3. When showering avoid using a loofa, wash cloth or body scrub. Just use your hands and a mild gentle soap to cleanse the body. Take quick showers with warm water.

4. Use a new razor and light touch when shaving.

5. Pat dry with towel or air dry as much as possible.

6. Apply perfumes, body sprays or colognes to hair or clothes, not on the skin.

7. Moisturize the skin. Moisturizers with bronzers can help hold in the tan longer and darken your color.
